    Restaurant Reviews - Narato

Finding this fine Japanese restaurant in the industrial area of Kowloon Bay was a bit of a delightful coincidence. We were seriously starving before an IMAX film at Megabox, but after checking the uninspired mall directory, we decided to trek a little across the street to try out this new eatery. Naruto is located in a “glass box” on the second-floor outdoor platform of Exchange Tower, a brand new commercial building. It serves general, all-round Japanese cuisine—all done expertly and at a decent price. We had the salmon and scallop sashimi with rice in wasabi sauce, which was really fresh and succulent. The minced toro with rice was wonderfully flavorful and soft. There are also some interesting Japanese snacks for you to nibble with over a sake or beer—the salmon cartilage in vinaigrette was refreshing with a pleasant, interesting texture, while the grilled salmon fin was succulently juicy. We can tell the place might be packed at lunch, but when we went at nighttime, it was less busy with friendly service and comfortable seating. By the end of the meal we were satisfied and had already pledged to return, should we find ourselves in that area again.
